Keratoconus is a disease that deforms the cornea into a cone and changes its biomechanics. The prevalence of keratoconus is higher in children and adolescents and decreases with age.

Once deformed, the cornea will not regain its basic shape by itself. That is why it is important to make a quick diagnosis when the disease is most progressive. Today, only cross-linking (CXL) can stop the disease. The CXL does not improve eyesight. Contact lenses are the best option for this.

In this workshop we will show you the ophthalmological and optometric management of keratoconus. We will explain when treatment is needed and what to do to improve visual acuity.

My left eye had to be operated on because of a cataract. As I had an Artiflex lens implanted a few years ago, it had to... be removed first before a modern lens could be implanted to correct the cataract. Prof. Hafezi treated me in an very competent and friendly manner. I am very happy with the result.read more

At the moment, 3 months have passed since the moment I made laser vision correction in this clinic. and I can say that... I am happy that I chose this particular clinic and Prof. F. Hafezi. The entire staff of the clinic is very friendly, treats patients with sympathy and patience if they are nervous before surgery (my big gratitude to Aida Alili for all support and patience). The doctor Hafezi and other doctors of the clinic are very professional and ready to explain to you as many times as you need. I can only recommend!read more
